4m-long cake-train in Paddington station

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Heathrow Express train service from Paddington to the airport in London, a PR firm built a 4m-long cake shaped like a train on the platform, guarded by birds of prey to keep the pigeons away. Passengers were invited to eat the train on Monday.

  1. “Guarded by birds of prey” more interesting than all the rest of it put together!

  2. Cake train or train cake? A cake train is a train for the transportation of cake. On the other hand a train cake is a cake you eat on a train.

    1. I remember watching Cake Train after school. Man, people could really eat back in the 70s.

  3. If that was in my subway and I walked in 7am, i’d be standing in front of it waiting for the doors to open… assuming I don’t just walk in to the cake.

  4. At least it was on time.  A first.  Still no more room for passengers than any of the others.

  5. The best bit is that the entire cake probably cost less than a single from king’s cross to heathrow. A return ticket would get you the birds of prey too.
